Skip to comments.Jesse Jackson’s false sermon on Trayvon Martin
Posted on 04/30/2012 6:56:04 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Civil rights icon Jesse Jackson took to the pulpit and the classroom in Miami to sermonize and implore African Americans to vote and to turn the death of Trayvon Martin into action.
There are lessons in this tragic matter of Trayvon Martins death, Jackson said at 93rd Street Community Baptist Church on Sunday. It defines white and black in this season -- that racism is alive and doing much too well.
So are half-truths and distortions if Jacksons speech is any measure.
After mentioning the deaths and martyrdom of black activists and youths, Jackson brought up Trayvons death Feb. 26 at the hands of neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, who claimed he was acting in self defense when he shot the unarmed teen in a Sanford gated community.
Jackson pointed out that Trayvon was from Miami Gardens. And he wondered why the teen was all the way in Central Florida staying with his father.
How did he leave Miami? Jackson asked, cause he was suspended from school on some trivial notion that there was some marijuana dust in a bag. If thats the case -- a childs about to step in the wrong direction -- you call his mother. You say, mother we need to have a meeting. Your sons about to make a wrong step. And you convene him and his mama in the principals office. You dont throw him away ..Ten day suspension for marijuana dust?
The following day, at Miami Central, Jackson repeated the line although he noted thats a mistake to have marijuana in a bag.
If Jacksons story of the suspension were the whole truth, it might be an outrage....

Translation: “No matter what happens in this case, be ready to go all ‘Rodney King Riot’ at a moment’s notice.”
It's amazing how they only burn every four years.
“Civil rights icon Jesse Jackson “ Ha!
I can think of a lot of names for that buffoon, but that isn’t on the list.
How about Race baiting slave master? He’s done more to keep blacks down in this country than anyone I can think of!
If he was doing his job, they wouldn’t need him anymore.
And it wasnt just his first disciplinary incident. It was his third and final. He had been suspended before that for repeated tardiness. And Trayvon also was busted in October when he was spotted marking up a door with WTF. A subsequent search of his bag showed he had 12 pieces of jewelry, a watch and a large flathead screwdriver
Martin’s actions validated Zimmerman’s suspicions of him.
